Now for something (not so) completely different: H7N9 maps...

Now it's time to mess around with influenza A(H7N9) virus mapping using Tableau.

I've (only just) realised the my esteemed peer, Shane Granger has been using Tableau to do this for ages (see here), and that this will be duplicating his excellent work. So I'll try my best to consciously differentiate my maps from his - but there's only so far you can go with that and there will be overlap. 

The page below is a very early first play with H7N9. It's just detections broken across 2013 and 2014, by province most likely to have been the source of the infections (as far as I can tell) in mainland China. 

If I can master this I'll try and add more details in the future. For now, these numbers a a little out of date but he trends are similar. This charts 449/452 detections.
